Summary
Manuel Antonio Gonzalez files a complaint with de Riva against Xavier Ortega (mulato Libre) who broke his shackles and fled the Mina Fontanena. Ortegas wife (Gregoria Gonzalez, Mestiza) had previously complained to Gonzalez about the treatment her Husband was receiving. Not withstanding, Ortega is ordered to return to work for Gonzalez to pay off the price of the broken shackles, a stolen horse, and the cost of judicial proceedings.
